TCEAD seeks to inspire students by fostering entrepreneurial creativity through dynamic, immersive and genuine educational experiences.


About Us

We are passionate about educating high school students in design thinking skills to help them succeed in a post-secondary institution and professionally.


Summer Program

We offer a fun and interactive design lab for high school students that results in portfolio pieces  through a 3-week program taught by professors and professionals.

High School Workshop

We work with educators to help students gain design knowledge and experience, answer industry questions, and provide application tips through a 3 hour workshop at your school.

Design Our Tomorrow

DOT Conference 2013

Designing Our Tomorrow is a non-profit organization focused on fostering creative thinking and connecting young people with the knowledge and resources they need to craft a better future. Since 2008, they have hosted conferences that bring industry luminaries and delegates together to discuss some of the world’s most fascinating challenges.

Congratulations to Zoe P for winning the 2013 Summer Design Lab logo challenge and receiving a spot at the sold out Designing Our Tomorrow conference! We are excited that some of our other students have taken the initiative to participate as well. It is going to be a great inspirational learning experience. We wish the participants all the best. Thank you to our DOT friends for supporting Summer Design Lab – where kids get connected.

Teacher Testimonial


This workshop was everything I expected and more…After a discussion on design, students were able to jump right into a real hands-on postsecondary design experience. I would definitely recommend this workshop. I will be having them back next year for sure!!!
